Hi All, Just wanted to understand if steamed sprouts are allowed during pregnancy? I have just started my 25th week.

Ok.. Thanks asha chaudhry.. I was actually reading if not steamed properly they contain some bacteria which can be passed to the fetus... so wasn't sure..

hey sheetal, yep steamed is better since raw sprouts are known to cause infections to the foetus. nothing like a bowl of steamed sprouts mixed with salt , lemon and 1 finely chopped chilli! Sheeba Rizvi Sheeba Vijesh #tagfwd

i loved a bit of jaggery with cooked sprouts and a dash of coconut scrapings. another occasional treat was steamed sprouts with chivda. otherwise, i used to make a sabzi with boiled sprouts, onions, garlic, tomato, potato, chiilies, corriander powder, haldi, salt... this can also be used as filling for sandwich... thsnks for the tag aditi manja

I made salad out of it...vid the onion tomato cucumber  paneer with the salt pepper & lemon... or if u want to change the taste than u can add dices of mangos plus finger chips (fried potatoes) with the black salt chat masala & lemon....it's tasty bhi & different bhi...or u can make suji ka uttapam topping with sprouts & onion...it's also taste gud
